Night lights have become common place in the school curriculum. They are usually inexpensive and can make an excellent vehicle for teaching the basics of electronics. The focus of the meeting will be a novel circuit for an automatic night light which can be the basis of really exciting and innovative ks3 project work.
At the meeting, we will assemble a night light, study how it works and identify opportunities for electronics teaching (appropriate for ks3).
A class set of night light kits will be available at the end of the meeting for each school attending. If possible, please email me with your intention to attend so I can organise the purchase of night light kits.
